Visiting Sackville, was like the Holy Grail of Shortwave.  The staff was
always very welcoming, and during the summers, they even hired students as
tour guides.  Canada once had a proud presence on SW.  We even issued
stamps honouring RCI, and new transmitters (in the 70s, I think).  What a
sad loss.   Another great visit was to RCI's monitoring base outside of
Ottawa.   Another great place, with racks of Racal receivers, and all sorts
of exotic antennae outside.  Those were the days!   73,....Walt Salmaniw
